First of all WELCOME TO THE NEW WEBSITE! We are so excited to finally have our new site and our new brand live. It has been a labor of love, but we are SO very happy to finally be (mostly) finished! We hope you all love the new site as much as we do!! If you’re an avid blog reader, don’t forget to change your feed reader settings to keep up to date with all things SMP. Now! On to our amazing inspiration shoot!
Earlier this year I had the DELIGHT of doing an inspiration shoot with my dream team, the always incredible Kate Whelan Events and the stunning Shannon of Flourish. Seriously, I will photograph pretty much anything these ladies put together because they are beyond amazing and talent! No, really! You should hire them for your wedding RIGHT NOW! Kate put together some of the most beautiful design elements I’ve ever seen and Shannon knocked the florals out of the park once again. Not only that, but Shannon created the beautiful headpiece and shoe clips for the bride to wear. Hands down, this was one of the most delightful shoots we’ve ever done.
I can’t tell you how much I LOVED the beautiful invitation suite, menu and signage Kristy of Momental Designs put together for us as well. When Kate first showed them to me I GASPED, like in a way that was almost embarrasing. Except these were SO BEAUTIFUL that I couldn’t be embarrased. They were perfect!
Also, let us shout it out to Sweet Cakes by Rebecca for this INSANELY AWESOME cake! I mean, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It was so beautiful! And of course, so tasty!
True Story: While we were in the planning stages of this shoot, Shannon showed us the “Put A Bird On It!” skit from the hilarious show, Portlandia. Seriously, there was laughing until we were in tears! Hence, we started calling this little shoot “Put A Geode On It!” and it just stuck!
A HUGE thank you to all the incredible vendors who made this shoot possible! We love you all!!
